      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I have spent much of the day hanging with the family and watching it rain but I also had a chance to glance at the calendar. Wow, September, October and November are not far away and with that comes the most exciting time of the year for me! Fishing is my passion and there is nothing better than doing it in the fall! I am really looking forward to the bite in this area as well as the bites on Gull, Mille Lacs, and Winnie. I look forward to cool mornings, "sweatshirt afternoons" and night-time trolling. It's time to start preparing for some great fall outings and I hope to see many of you on the water or in my boat!

I agree TO, only thing I don't look forward to is wet pant legs when you slip putting the boat in grin.gif

Otherwise the scenery around the lakes along with the beautiful weather and a few nice fish make if for a great time of year.

Yep I agree. I seriously need to find some pheasants as well! Fishing this time of year is what it's all about for me.

I REALLY gotta get moving on the lights for the boat, the sun is going to start setting earlier soon...

I'm more partial to the fishing but hunting is an option too I guess. grin.gif

The fall walleye fishing down in your area is tough to beat! Last fall was a lot of fun! I'm sure going to miss not being in the area this fall frown.gif But I still plan on making a few trips down that way wink.gif

Fall fishing? I've never done it before, ever. You can always find me at home around noon on the weekends plucking big Canada geese, woodies, mallards, and divers. grin.gif

That may change this year though. Goose hunting is very very good around here, but the ducks just seem to keep disappearing. So I may just wreak some havoc on fish this fall, or at least give them a chance to laugh at my presentation. wink.gif

Eric, it has been a long time since I've seen a "?" behind fall fishing. smirk.gif You need to rethink the waterfowl hunting and start chasing 'eyes. Maybe we'll be able to curve your way of thinking on October 14. grin.gif

Anyone who misses the fall bite is just too busy, squeeze in a couple of days and you will be hooked. B.C. probley would forget all about those ducks and geese.

The goose hunting, for me is in December, so they will have to wait. grin.gif

Eric, you're welcome to hop in with me again on October 14.

Ahhh....ducks and geese. That's one thing I could never forget. It's been molded into my blood. smile.gif A walleye or two to mix things up would sure be nice though. wink.gif

Now you know I can't refuse that offer TO! grin.gif Same boat rig or different one by then? wink.gif Just curious how that's going, if it is still going for ya.

The rig we're looking at....well, we've switched what we want about 30 times in the past couple months, or so it seems. crazy.gifcrazy.gifwink.gif We need to buy a new a/c & furnace (bad coil on a/c and furnace starting to leak CO). So much for our boat down payment! Still though, we're eyeing up an Alumacraft Tournament Sport at this time, but with the way things are going, that'll likely change before I'm done writing this. crazy.gifconfused.giftongue.gifgrin.gif

I'm going to finish this open water season with the rig I have. I'll have a new rig in the spring. smirk.gif

Hunting season is great. It takes the people off the lakes and leaves the great fishing for the rest of us. grin.gif

Hunting is a lot of fun too though. Nothing better than watching my lab flush roosters or make a long, ice breaking retrieve on a greenhead.

My fall season is probably split 50/50 between hunting and fishing. Since I am living in MN now it will probably be more fishing this year.

Fall has to be the best and worst time of year. If only a guy could go on no sleep.

My wife and I were up at Vermilion last week Wed., Thurs. and Fri. Talk about a fall feel. Thursday the high was 70 and Wednesday the high was 64! Mornings were in the low 50's. Plus a couple of trees were just starting to change color. smile.gif

I saw one heck of a nice buck about 500yds away from where we were staying. Crossed the road in front of us, went 20yds or so out and stood there and looked at us. Very nice 8-point (or 4x4 if you're weird). grin.gif Brow tines were probably around 6", and the other antlers were in that 8" - 10" range with a 16" - 18" spread. I would have taken him in my book.

Although there was an east/southeast wind, there was a "good chop" on the lake (2' - 3'ers) and it was completely overcast. I only got about 1/2 day of fishing in each day. frown.gif Maybe next time I leave my wife home. shocked.gif Oooooo I hope she doesn't read this! blush.gifgrin.gif

      Dang Curt, did you take my suggestion on a drone?  Great report.

      Well, I have to pay for registration on my boat trailer to run it on the road, and the boat to run it on the lake, why shouldn't wheel houses?  I guess I don't feel bad for the wheel house guys.

      No not yesterday. 2 weeks ago when we had that first cold spell I went out on Baxter, Blue and Long and checked the ice. They were locked up but only had 1-2" inches so didn't venture out too far. Baxter probably was walkable but had open water on the back end so figured I stay off. Last Sunday I went and checked them out after that warm rainy week we had and they had open water, so yesterday I skipped checking them and went farther north. But I did notice most lakes were locked up on the drive up there. Cant wait for the local lakes to get some decent ice! 
    • JMP_37
      Wondering if big sandy is clear enough to spear fish when the ice comes on? Never done it before and would like to give it a try
    • monstermoose78
      Bryan did you check any lakes around me?
    • Bryan P
      Had to scratch the ice fishing itch, so I drove up north to the Mille Lacs lake area and found a smaller lake with 4-5" of ice. Punch a few holes and found some crappies and sunnies. Nothing big but was fun time and a great way to start my ice seaso n! Bring on the ice!  Check out the video: https://youtu.be/BTTv_G07PB8

      Double the lines for down rigging you dummy!

      Hey, I resemble that remark!!   Plus my wife only went fishing with me once the whole time that we have been married and she brought a book! I got her trained in right away. Sorry about your training problem!
